Library grand opening

On Monday 11th September we held our grand opening of the new library.  It was a fantastic, story filled day with visits from authors and storytellers.  The day started in the central area, with a whole school 'opening ceremony'.  We said thank you to the many organisations that helped raise the funds for the library, including our amazing PSA, the Livius Trust, the parish Council, the Babcary Musical Revue, Primary Times and others.  Joffre White, a Patron of Reading and an author who has visited our school in the past had the honour of cutting the ribbon.

Following that, the children worked with Joffre in the juniors and with Arabella Storyteller and Thannisara Storysharer in the infants on stories and poetry.  The children have used the library all week during playtimes and are now able to borrow books to bring them home.  The Year 6 librarians have done an excellent job and are enthusiastic about their new roles.  A letter has gone out to parents about borrowing books this week..
